Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

Sherlock Holmes gets a fun, sweet twist with two irresistible young heroes and black & white illustrations throughout, in this middle grade debut from internationally bestselling YA author Elizabeth Eulberg.

Shelby Holmes is not your average sixth grader. She's nine years old, barely four feet tall, and the best detective her Harlem neighborhood has ever seen--always using logic and a bit of pluck (which yes, some might call bossiness) to solve the toughest crimes.

When eleven-year-old John Watson moves downstairs, Shelby finds something that's eluded her up till now: a friend. The easy-going John isn't sure of what to make of Shelby, but he soon finds himself her most-trusted (read: only) partner in a dog-napping case that'll take both their talents to crack.

   Shelby Holmes on the outside - Piecing Me Together on the inside
Piecing Me Together is a book that we love, but is actually by Renee Watson. The cover is a picture of a man Apparently the return window has already closed. We just realized that these were bought as a gift.
   My son really enjoyed this book
My son loved this book. I wish there were more books coming out.
   Great mystery for kids
If your child enjoys mysteries and mysteries. This is a book that is fun and different from the others. It's for either boys or girls.
   Enjoyable, Elementary
I have read a lot of the stories. This was enjoyable and I enjoyed it. It is a nice read. It's sort of like an Encyclopedia Brown story. It appeals to the young today.
   Cheers for Ms. Eulberg!
I know a quality book when I read it, even though I am older than the target audience. This book is very fun. It has a mystery about a missing dog. It just hits all the right notes, as a nod to the original mysteries. It is very well- done and very complex. Sir Arthur made me laugh with delight. I can't wait for the next adventure to come out in September of 2017!
   Not Just For Kids
If you put aside the fact you' re reading about kids, this is a pretty good mystery. The book had a good story and I liked the characters in it. I will definitely read another book by Mrs Eulberg.
   Loved it!
The book was well written. The way kids talk and think is exactly what they will do. I loved it. There is nothing to object to about the book. I don't know how they can all be true, but that's the plot, I didn't understand how she came up with all her conclusions. I liked the pictures of her and John's nature. I'm happy to see there's a book 2.
